Day 132: Went to the range for a change to work on my priority piece and see ball flight. Slipped into the bad habit of just hitting in the middle of the session, but then recovered. The balls were those awful floating type that were really beat down. Not much to gain on distance, but start direction helped.

Day 49 (Feb 23 2021) - Got to go to the course today to play.  Worked on course management, primarily where did I want to hit the approach shot into the green from on the 4's and 5's, in essence working from green back to the fairway.   Have to say it is much more comfortable hitting a shot you really like into the green as opposed to one at an awkward distance.

Day 422 - February 23, 2021

Today was a long day. Spent two hours downtown practicing. About 20 minutes of that was putting. Now, I don't hit a lot of balls, but there's a lot of work, a lot of rehearsals, etc. I started out with a 9I and things weren't good. I got them better by re-focusing on the just lifting of the arms, soft right arm, and then using the arms a bit more to start down instead of the body. Finished with some 6I that were pretty good.

Got the Live View Pro today, so I'm really looking forward to using that so I don't have to completely disrupt everything to look back in the mirror, AND so I can see how long my swing was right after I hit it, without having to trim or go back and record, etc.

Day 436:

Did COVID-19 day-5 drills, and then some 75% speed full swings with 7-iron working on recentering/flow. Also did COVID-19 day-3 left hand reach drill as a rehearsal before each full swing.

This is the camera that is similar to what Mirrorvision app does right? Will you be posting any comments/review on TST at some point? I was looking into it before I got the Mirrorvision app. Would be interested to hear your opinion on its value.

Day 3.  For 45 minutes tonight, I worked on putting on a real putting green.  One of the cups was about 5' from the edge of the green, so I was able to do an around-the-clock drill from 4', and it only took me 19 putts to do.  Either I got better in a hurry or it was an easy hole location.

Day 423 - February 24, 2021

Good long two+ hour session today. Focused on making the right sized backswing - not too small, not too long. Arms lift up in front of me, but not very far. I hit some 8I, then some 6I. I finished up with a 3I and really tried to feel that my setup was not getting too far forward.

Day 50 (Feb 24 2021)- Work on full swings with irons and driver(s) in the yard (temps in the 60's today) and hard foam balls (getting 70-80yds flight).   Working on maintaining steady grip pressure and flow through the downswing - I tend to get too rushed.  Noticed better ball flight by simply humming a steady note through the swing - to resist the grunt reflex.  Made me think of my friend who is always humming "Roxanne" by the Police when he plays.

    • Day 60 - Slow swings making sure I fully turned my hips. 
    • Note from practice 2021-03-05: Working on palmar flexion as priority piece. Slow rehearsals of transition move and Covid-19 day-4 drill all seem to look fine, with clubface aligned to my spine at A6 (slightly toe down). When I move to full speed, and look at swings on film with Mirrorvision, the face is vertical. This leads to a flip/shove to close the face at impact, or I can hold off the flip (if I think about it hard enough before the swing), and leave the face a bit open and hit what I assume would be a push/cut. I had a mini-realization watching the videos and doing some rehearsals. When I rehearse the palmar flexion move, my forearms arms don't have nearly as much tension as when I am making a full speed swing, and my wrists move freely. I did some rehearsals simulating the tension in my forearms that I feel with full speed swing and tried to palmar flex my wrist and I could barely do it. I did some more rehearsals/Covid-19 day-4 drills, and then hit some balls with full swings with the conscious thought of less forearm tension, and suddenly I could feel the palmar flexion move. It was too dark to get any video, but I'm going to record tomorrow and see if the clubface looks any different at A6 compared to video from today.
    • Lmao, yep.  The range on this man is unbelievable.  
    • You go from this to "Down with the Sickness" and you got a huge gap. 
    • I played this for my elderly mother, and she loved it.  Wasn't quite as impressed with the rest of their lineup.  His voice is absolutely magical, probably the best cover I've heard.
